Unstoppable Osimhen scores, Napoli extends lead at Serie A summit

Nigeria's Victor Osimhen once again scored on Saturday - his ninth Serie A goal as Napoli defeated Udinese 3-2 at the Diego Maradona Stadium.

It took the Nigeria international a quarter of an hour to score. Elif Elmas found him in a good area and the towering West African did not hesitate to convert the cross.

The former Lille forward also played a vital role in helping his team get the second goal in the 31st minute when he controlled the ball well and overpowered his markers before passing the ball to Hirving Lozano, who assisted Piotr Zielinski

World Cup-bound Cameroonian Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa then made his mark in the 58th minute by setting up Elmas, who made it 3-0.

Having scored 10 goals in all competitions, the 23-year-old could get 20 or more in the ongoing campaign and would be tremendous for the Super Eagles of Nigeria who face Portugal in an international friendly next Thursday.
